The Guardian.“If so few Black artists, so few women of color, are being inducted, then the voting process needs to be overhauled. Music is a lifeforce that is constantly evolving — and they can’t keep up.” The 58-year-old “Miss Narcissist” singer’s damning essay lists industry pioneers and visionaries like Sister Rosetta Tharpe, Chaka Khan, and Kate Bush as women who have been overlooked for years by the Rock Hall’s nominating board and voting body.
Love noted that Bush, for example, received her fourth HOF nomination last month, despite being eligible in 2004. “That year, Prince was inducted — deservedly, in his first year of eligibility — along with Jackson Browne, ZZ Top, Traffic, Bob Seger, the Dells, and George Harrison,” Love wrote.“The Rock Hall’s co-founder and then-chairman Jann Wenner (also the co-founder of Rolling Stone) was inducted himself.
But Bush didn’t make it on the ballot until 2018 — and still she is not in.”The Post has contacted reps for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for comment.The Rock Hall formed in 1983. Artists become eligible for induction 25 years after the release of their first commercial recording.
Nominee ballots are sent to an international voting body of more than 1,000 artists, historians, and members of the music industry.Thanks to Netflix’s “Stranger Things,” Bush’s 1985 hit “Running Up That Hill (A Deal With God)” got a second life and expanded her influence to a new generation of fans. “Never mind that she was the first woman in pop history to have written every track on a million-selling debut,” Love added of Bush and her 1978 album “The Kick Inside.”“It took the Rock Hall 30-plus years to induct Nina Simone and Carole King,” she continued.

Chris Willman Senior Music Writer and Chief Music Critic “Love Rising” is looking to combat the deeply risible. Nashville-based musicians are coming together in a big way — a Bridgestone Arena-sized way — tonight for the show of that name, a benefit concert to raise awareness and funds for the LGBTQ community and its allies in the face of Tennessee legislation that is seen as targeting the rights of gay and trans people generally and drag performers specifically.

Julia MacCary editor Courtney Love has taken aim at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, penning a scathing essay that calls out the dearth of women and Black artists showcased in the Cleveland-based organization. “If so few women are being inducted into the Rock Hall, then the nominating committee is broken,” Love wrote in an op-ed for the Guardian. “If so few Black artists, so few women of colour, are being inducted, then the voting process needs to be overhauled.
